By now, surely you've heard that the Department of Health and Human Services has determined that birth control is basic preventive health care and is required to be provided without a co-pay by health insurers. (You've probably also heard about the moronic comparison Sandy Rios of Family PACmade, wondering if we'll be required to cover pedicures next.)
It's a huge victory for women's health, family planning and both sides of the abortion debate -- everyone wants to see fewer of them, and contraception is an excellent way to prevent unplanned pregnancies and, thus, abortion.
And Planned Parenthood is stoked. Check out this slightly absurd video featuring ebullient Bollywood-style carousing from dancers and...a pack of birth control pills. What does it mean? Who knows, exactly. But, like this HHS decision, it is awesome.
